Potential safety benefits of Automatic Collision Notification - A case by case analysis
Paper i proceeding, 2014

This study aimed to investigate the potential effect of Automatic Collision Notification (ACN) on reducing road fatalities and naturally deceased in the road environment. No such detailed study had previously been made in Sweden. The material consisted of in-depth studies of fatal crashes collected by the Swedish Transport Administration (STA) and from SOS Alarm, the Swedish emergency service central operating the emergency calls. The method used was a case-by-case analysis. The results showed that ACN could have an effect in 3.2 percent of the road fatalities and in 14.3 percent of the fatalities regarding naturally deceased in the road environment.
